Healthy bone density is necessary to support many dental procedures. Bone density may be reduced due to periodontal disease or tooth loss that is not corrected in a timely manner.
In a bone graft surgery, the doctor transplants a small piece of bone from another part of your jaw or another area of your body to your jawbone. While using your own bone usually gives the best results, bone from a tissue bank or artificial bone material can also be used. Your jawbone bonds with the transplanted material to make a stronger foundation for your dental work. There are several types of bone grafting procedures, including ridge augmentation and sinus lifts.
Our dentists are thoroughly trained in bone graft surgery. They will be happy to explain whether bone grafting may help meet your dental needs or enable you to enjoy the benefits of dental implants.
